Brown, de bate coach, referring to the sub ject, “lies not with the officers but with the communities themselves. It refers to the spirit of law and order first manifested by pioneers, as contrasted with general attitude of the country today.” The schools entered in the con test are: Pacific university, Oregon Agricultural college, Linfield col lege, Eugene Bible university, Wil lamette university, Albany college, Oregon State Normal school, Paci fic college, and the University of Oregon.

Drama Students Develop Walk Like Ducks or Sailors The man who is afflicted with a peculiar rolling gait acquired during his war days with the marines, or the fellow who has a slight bow effect due to toddling too soon, used to be noticed, chuckled at, and scorned by the mincing co-ed. But suddenly he finds himself followed by this same pretty co-ed. Each morning when he strikes out toward the campus he is not disappointed to find that a lit tle lamb is sure to follow. For blocks he is pursued. With each step this damsel makes an earnest attempt to reproduce this ex traordinary form of locomotion. Withering glances and scornful looks will not beat off this in truder. This fair damsel’s purpose is not the idea of shanghaiing him or even of being companionable but her foremost thought is to portray character through a walk thus get a good grade in one of her drama classes.

Behold, however, Oregon spirit has superimposed tradition on tra dition and Senior Leap week, now a vital part of the year, is the re sult. Then, at last, may the boy sit at home and array himself for the festivities while the girl raps at the door and asks. “Is John readyf” Plans are being arranged and the senior girls already, it is ru mored, are casting glances around at male members of their class, al though dates may not be made un til Open House, the evening of April 1, which starts the first “leap.” Hilda Chase. chairman, and Claudia Broders, Penelope Gehr, and Gertrude Butler compose the program committee which is in charge of arrangements for the week.

B. WISE VALUES COLLEGE FORCES University Brings Spiritual And Intellectual Creations In Existence of Student SYMBOLS NOT NEEDED Twentieth Century is Time Of Maturity of Oil Other Epochs in Human History If the student in the University has been properly stimulated by his educational experience he will never revert to the intellectual and spir itual plane up6n which he existed before he entered the University, even though he goes back to live in the environment which surrounded him through high school, was the opinion expressed by Rabbi Jonah B. Wise in his assembly address yesterday on “Some Creative Forces and their Evidences.” “The creative forces which have to do with the University experi ence are spiritual,” the Rabbi said. He lauded the work of university instructors and the tremendous spiritual power involved in their work. “A teacher in a university has a larger spiritual field than any minister I know,” he said. Present Century Broadening “The twentieth century is one of amenities, it is a time when men listen to messages through the air and have contact with remote masses of unthinkable size. At no time in the history of the human race has man been more privileged to share with his fellow man so many amenities; never has there been so many things to take life away from the narrow way and re stricting prejudices,” the speaker said. He expressed the opinion that man has gone beyond the primitive need of physical sign posts to point the way to a spiritual plane—that he had no further need of totems, crouching Buddhas and other sym bols. “For those who have learned the language,” he declared, “or even feebly discerned the way, icons are not necessary.” There are periods of new birth in the history of mankind, the Rab bi said, which, like the phoenix bird, rises again from its own ashes. The sixteenth century was especial ly typical, in his opinion, with such men as Rabelais, Sir Thomas Moore, Luther and Erasmus bring ing a rejuvenation of human life. The French Revolution was another such period, he eaid, when men worked on a higher plane than even (Continued on page four) EXTENSION DIVISION HAS MONTHLY PUBLICATION The aim of the extension divi sion Monitor is to promote a group feeling and spirit among the stu dents of the Extension dj^v|lsion, particularly the correspondence students, and to help them realize that they are a part of the Univer sity's larger student body, accord ing to the annual report of the Monitor which is now opening its thirteenth year of publication with the issuance of the thirteenth vol ume. Last year twelve numbers of the publication were issued six be ing special student numbers. In helping the students, the Moni tor gives examples of the work of other students, and carries on round ,table discussions in its columns. The monthly is the organ of the extension division bringing one student in contact with his fellow students. It is through the columns of the publication that the several students learn to know their fellow students. In a great many cases extracts from the lesson papers of different ones have been published. Special numbers of the Monitor take into consideration other ac tivities of the Portland center, and classroom instruction. Some ex amples of this type of Monitor are “Douglas County Local History Contest.” “High School Dramatics,” and other bits of welfare work. Fur Coat Disappears From Hendricks Hall 1 Late Monday Night A three-quarter muskrat fur coat was taken from a suite in Hendricks hall last Monday. The coat was the property of Miss Geraldine Lutz, an occupant of the hall. Miss Lutz believes the coat was taken sometime Monday night as she thinks it was in the room when she retired Monday night and someone was in the room all of Monday afternoon. A reward is offered for any in formation leading to the present whereabouts of the wrap. It is lined with a light tan-colored material. That such thefts are being com mitted on the campus is to be de deplored, said Miss Gertrude Tal bot, head resident of the hall, in relating the circumstances of the disappearance of the eoat. Miss Talbot further stated that she believed the fact that things have been and are being stolen from the students from time to time should be made known so that a feeling might be aroused against such acts. This is the fourth theft reported among cam pus houses this year. The other three being from fraternity houses.

OSCAR RICHARDS SELLS ARTICLE ABOUT YEAST An article on yeast, written by Oscar Bichards, teaching fellow in zoology, has been accepted for pub lication by the Journal of American Chemical Society. The article deals with the effect of calcium sulphate on the growth and fermentation of yeast. The effects of salts upon yeast have been studied by scientists and the effect of calcium sulphate salt adds one more to the list of known salts. Mr. Bichards has found the maximum amount of cal cium sulphate in which yeast will grow best. Yeast will not grow well with no sulphate or with small quantities. Nor does yeast grow well after the maximum amount of sulphate is reached. The same con clusions are reached in regard to fermentation. ITCGHT WATCHMAN IS ILL AT HOME WITH LA GRIPPE Night watchman, J.

WOMAN EVANGELIST ADDRESSES STUDENTS Youth, Hope of World, Says Mrs. V. B. Demarest “The spirit of youth, not educa tion, is the hope of the world,” de clared Mrs. Victoria Booth-Clib born Demarest, noted evangelist and granddaughter of General Wil liam Booth, founder of the Salva tion Army, in an address before a group of students in Villard hall, yesterday afternoon. “The character and glory of youth is purity, strength, simplic ity, and joy,” said the speaker; “the purity of knowledge of the soul, not of ignorance; the strength to say no to the world and yes to God; the rugged simplicity which loves truth and sincerity; the joy of the bubbling spring, of skipping lambs, and of the laughter of lit tle children, not the pleasure of sin. “Sin is a fact; it must be faced, and education is not the solution,” she continued, “but that is not to disparage the va’ue of education. For education is a tool dependent in its application and worth on the man back of it. ‘An educated devil is more to be feared than an ignorant one,’ said my grandmother, the great Katherine Booth, who was a very wise woman. Do not di vorce education from Godl “Youth is a matter of spirit, not years; there are children who are old—old with the knowledge of sin, and there are old men who shine with the glory of youth—with the spirit which typifies it. You can keep that priceless treasure if you will,” she concluded, but you can not keep or recover it apart from the Lord, Jesus Christ. He was Himself the Truth; He is the foun tain of eternal youth. FENCING MAY PROVE MOST POPULAR SPORT Whether or not fencing, newly introduced to the University, will take the place of swimming and tennis as the most popular of spring sports among University women will be determined at the end of next week, when all girls will have designated their preference in the line of spring sports, according to information from Miss Florence Al den, director of physical education for women. During this week and next week girls are signing up for spring sports, stating first and sec ond choices. Last spring swimming and tennis proved most popular among the wo men, but fencing gives promise of being in favor this coming term. Equipment for this di version is expected to arrive in time for the beginning of the quar ter’s work. Sports to be offered, which will replace regular gymnasium classes this spring, are horseback riding, swimming, tonnis, baseball, volley ball, fencing, golf, folk dancing, interpretive dancing, archery and hockey.
